From the standpoints of energy security and the prevention of global warming, nuclear power generation is important and will soon embark on a new era. Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy, Ltd., was established in 2007 by Hitachi, Ltd., and the General Electric Co. of the U.S. as means of participation in the nuclear energy business.
Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy, Ltd., having inherited the technologies and the experiences of both companies, each with a half-century of experience in the nuclear energy business, is working for progress in that field while promoting highly reliable manufacturing practices. Furthermore, through synergistic collaboration with the supporting companies in the U.S. and Canada, we offer global services of consistently high quality, ranging from research and development to design, manufacturing and construction, as well as; the maintenance of advanced boiling water reactors, fast reactors and nuclear fuel cycle facilities, etc. Hitachi Group’s overall strength, is used to support the reliable, sustainable supply of energy, as part of an effort to build a richer, more comfortable future for people and the planet.
Hitachi’s Advanced Boiling Water Reactor (ABWR) is the most experienced operational Generation 3+ design in the world that has achieved an incomparable level of safety with additional facilities for safety enhancement as well as plant layout designs to mitigate site specific external hazard.
Hitachi has developed an in-house engineering system, "Advanced Integrated CAE System", which is a plant engineering database containing EPC project experiences and project management know-how to actualize high-quality and efficient works. The system uses the latest IT to enable coordination from Conceptual & Basic Design, 3D Modeling & Detail Design, Production Design & Manufacturing, Construction & Start Up, and Operation & Maintenance. It shortens work periods and raises the level of quality assurance to accomplish goals on schedule on budget.
